During the pause after Me & My Uncle, referring to the free concert the next day at Altamont Bobby says "Bear wants me to tell you to bring dope" and Jerry adds "Not only that but it's something to do."
Harry Ely mastered this AUD tape. He was a little fast on his pause button at this show. He clips several songs and pauses three times during drums. Otherwise, he made quite a decent audience tape for '69 Dead.
Jerry introduces Dire Wolf saying "This is a song you can all sing along on" and as it turned out "Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me" was a good refrain at Altamont. Jerry uses this intro the night before as well.
The longest China Cat > Rider bridge jam yet features a Caution tease from Phil among its divagations.
The Uncle John's Jam is just a scrap from the song's jam in 7s. Apparently the previous night was the song's premier (there are Uncle John's Jams on 11/7 and 11/8) but as far as we know they didn't play the tune again till 12/12. Given this taper's fast pause button finger, he's quite capable of having clipped the transition from Uncle John's jam into the Main Ten, but unless he ran into serious trouble it's difficult to figure how he lost nearly the whole of Uncle John in a flip (he had a flip coming, probably, after Dire Wolf). The evidence leaves it totally unclear whether they played the tune or just the jam.

A great performance, but sadly what sounds like a poorly seated 1/8th inch mic plug renders the first couple of songs nearly unlistenable.

Black Peter, Baby Blue
Always loved this show for Garcia's sublime countrified guitar playing and the melllllllloooowww vibe throughout. Without a b-bender he manages to coax some really beautiful pedal steely sounds out of his guitar.
Check out the Black Peter and Baby Blue to see what I mean. [wipes tears from eyes]
And then there's the Pig with his sweet organ playing plainly audible on every song and how about that howling during Hurts Me Too? Yikes.

Kind of prophetic that the Dead closed out the show before Altamont with "It's All Over Now Baby Blue".

this is a gret classic show.... despite the quick pause button-finger, although the tape lagging adds some psychedelic effect.
i see the poster below me really enjoyed this show, as he was totally raving about it.... he must have been spun....

not bad 69 AUD...
This really suprised me for an AUD master, I could've sworn it was just another late sixties fuzzed out board...but hey, other than listening to Harry Ely snap his fingers during Cumberland Blues, this tape is a good listen.
